US Official PlayStation Magazine has a sneaky exclusive up its sleeve. The Mortal Kombat remake will feature God of War’s Kratos as a playable character, with his own fatalities, special moves and what-not.
No story mode for Kratos as it would indeed probably be pretty bollocks. Not the Kratos story itself, you understand – we love the God of War trilogy. But squeezing him in a cutscene with someone like Jax? How naff could you get…
Anyway, true to form, and in typical 4-year-old boy fashion, Kratos’ designer David Jaffe tweeted: ‘[He] would have a FUCKALITY and fuck the SHIT out of Sonya AND Katana at the same motherfucking TIME!!!!’
Intent on making parents everywhere vomit in disgust, he then wrote: ‘Kratos should reach out and pull the fucking MK classic Narrator into the game and gut the fucker! Oh, or rip the head off ‘toasty!’ guy!’
No news on any exclusive 360 content though at the moment. Who on earth would they pick? Our bet is on Alan Wake, or a car from Burnout Paradise or something…
Sony have announced that they have sold over four million Playstation Move units since its launch, and are confident that sales momentum will continue over the Christmas period.
It will have to have a strong holiday period – Microsoft yesterday confirmed that they have sold over two-and-a-half million Kinect units in twenty-five days, suggesting that Sony’s lead could evaporate sooner rather than later, despite its head start.
“The 4.1 million units are global sales for the company.” – Director of corporate communications and social media for Sony Computer Entertainment America, Patrick Seybold
Playstation Move has been available in a variety of bundles from September 15 in Europe, September 17 in the U.K. and North America, and October 21 in Japan. The PS3 though has an estimated user base of 41.6 million people, meaning only a fraction of owners have currently bought into the Move philosophy.
Kinect meanwhile has been available since November 04, meaning that Microsoft are shifting approximately 100,000 units a day compared to Sony’s 53,000 daily sales.
